Is the fire pump engine the same which powered the Hillman Imp range of motor cars in the ‘60s and ‘70s?
 
The later ones were the racing derivative, known as light portable pumps because it was a 4 man lift.

Not quite. The Godiva pump engine was the FW (for Featherweight), later designated FWP (pump). It was used in the Lotus Elite and other 50s racers and was IIRC 1460 cc

The Imp engine was the a derivative of the FWM, a far smaller displacement (650cc) fire pump engine; the engine in the man portable pump.

To confuse matters, there was also a Godiva engine, a 2.5l F1 engine which had no direct connection to either fire pump engine.
